Contact Dance Company presents duets on film. ‘Human Range’

Shropshire Inclusive Dance is proud to present a series of duets filmed live during our shows. First we would like  to share with you ‘Human Range’.

In July 2019 we premiered two new pieces to a packed audience at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury. The show began with this powerful and playful duet’.
It is performed by Delphine Wise and Poppy Mansfield. The work was choreographed and directed by SiD’s co artistic directors Rachel Liggitt and Ray Jacobs.

The piece explored notions of Human Range, how far can we reach ?
The music is by Nils Frahm.

The duet was beautifully filmed by  JTV Production

Shining a light on SID dance artist Anna Belyavin

What a fantastic week for SiD! Today we are shining a light on Anna Belyavin. Anna has been a SiD dance artist since the very beginning, way back in 2012. Anna leads our inclusive youth dance work, teachers Thursday nights, works on many aspects of our projects and is a fantastic performer – her many skills blow us away!
She also takes care of all our well-being. You are our rock and anchor Anna and we love having you in the company. Thank you.

 

Shining a light on Contact Dance Company performer Nick Robinson

Today we are shining a light on dancer Nick Robinson. Nick travels from Wales to England each week, on a Thursday, to attend SiD’s dance class. He leaves 2 hours ahead of the class to get to class on time and because public transport options are limited. He is passionate, dedicated and loves dance. He has been doing this since SiD began in 2012. Nick you are amazing. Each week we will shine a light on a dancer – their commitment, their passion.
